Are there any good ad blockers for Internet Explorer (version 8 or 9) or Chrome? I want to protect computers from ads that attempt to download malware.

I use AdBlock for Chrome which can be found at the Chrome Web Store at this link.

That seems to work well.

I just need to find a free ad blocker for Internet Explorer 8. If one exists, I won't need a huge Hosts file to block everything.

I finally tried AdFender, and it didn't do anything. It only blocked ads from a few servers that are very lightly used. A total of 12 ads were blocked in an entire day, none of which came from the servers that I wanted to block.

Strange, worked quite well when I tested it.

Have a look at the link below to see if it can help.
AdFender doesn't seem to be filtering anything... what's wrong?

Alternatively, contact AdFender Support.
